King Cake Party is Moving!
This year's King Cake Party will be Friday January 8th at Oak Lodge.
About the Oak Lodge:
*Lovely venue with a New Orleans flare; perfect for the Mardi Gras season!
*Conveniently located off of Sherwood Blvd.
We truly hope you will be happy with the new
venue as the committee has searched various sites from the fully catered to self catering and this is overall the very best arrangement. Here are a few pictures of the Oak

*Private secure parking and great atmosphere.
*Food served will be much more substantial
(and tasty) and replenished all night long.
*Ticket prices will be $60 and will include
unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks.
Our Annual Tableau is January 23, 2016
The 2016 Ball will be held January 23,
2016, at the Crown Plaza on Constitution.
However, this year we are trying something
different for assigning tables. At the Spring
Crawfish Boil, we had the floor plan printed
out and everyone was asked to choose a table. Tables are reserved for 8 – 10 people
only. Many of you signed up for you and your
friends at the Spring Crawfish Boil.
We hope this will please everyone at the
ball. We also have made changes to end the
“crashers”. We are trying to stay one step
ahead of them!
We can always use your help during the
event or in its preparations. Please give me
a call at 235-247-9830 or email me at:
[email protected]h.net
Information about reserving tables:
*Tables cannot be reserved for anyone
who has not paid their dues. Make sure
you get your dues in to Jim Kaiser ASAP.
*Membership Invoice (see attached)
and checks are made payable to Krewe
Mystique. Mail both to Jim Kaiser at
13713 Lexham Garden Avenue, 70810.
*Money for the entire table and the attached Reserved Table Invoice listing all
names sitting at the table will be due
October 2, 2015,
*Checks for Ball Tickets and Reserved
Table Invoice are mailed to Carolyn
Pittman at 13835 Tiger Bend Road,

Lieutenants of Mystique
The Lieutenants of Krewe Mystique are
very important to the success of Mystique. They:
*represent the Krewe in community
*help out at all Krewe events,
*work “behind the scenes,” away from
the spotlights, and
*participate in every social function held
by the Krewe.
We need both male and female Lieutenants. Any Krewe member can become a
Lieutenant and help us become better. If
interested please contact any board member or
Henry Pere, [email protected]
Lieutenants Chair
The Mystique board would like to express
appreciation to the lieutenants who are
stepping down this year. They include
Rhonda Bourgeois, Rick Breedlove, Bob
Cook, and Doug Lee.
Thank you for your service.
